Catch a Fresh Bite: Eskimo Candy Seafood, Maui

If scuba diving, whale watching and surfing lessons have left you not only broke but starving — fear not. You can still eat great fresh seafood without having to pawn your new surfboard.

The solution lies at Maui’s Eskimo Candy. This Seafood Market and Café boasts not only a wide selection of freshly caught fish but outstanding service and expertise. Simply point to any of the fish and you will be given a cheery description of its taste and texture, how to prepare it, and what sides or butters to accompany it. Note: it’s only open Monday-Friday…

Or if you just fancy catching a bite (no pun intended) Eskimo Candy also has a café serving an array of fresh seafood dishes from fish tacos to fish n’ chips or anything else that would even make Nemo consider cannibalism.

You can choose to dine in the store itself, taking in the jovial décor and colorful mural, or choose one of the tables outside and enjoy the evening air. The store also has a range of T-shirts and hats each sporting the Eskimo Candy name and an assortment of illustrations.

If you don’t manage to squeeze in a visit to either of the Maui or Kauai locations, be sure to visit the Eskimo Candy Website, where you can shop for apparel, browse the different seafood products, as well as learn about the company’s history.

Regardless of how full your pockets are, if your stomach is empty head to Eskimo Candy… and who knows? With the money you save, you could invite your surf instructor along, too…
